Consorting with Gaia, playing with Light!

Dear all,  it’s been a month since I started to `camp out’ and sleep in the garden.. (yes, through rain, shine and the cold nights now!)

It’s a quest started to declutter my spirit, reconnect with Earth, protect the garden from interfering Neighbours (long story), and to look for the light within..

It’s not a Hermit-quest..because by day I am doing everything as `normal’ as I do…on the internet, attending events, running rituals…etc.   But at night, I retreat to the garden and my tent.. in the sacred space by the tree where I have been doing magical works & meditations for at least 20+ years..

Mani stars

There’s been so many insights, empowering thoughts and ideas flowing through..  Am not trying to capture them all..  Just will see which ones `stay’ in my conscious mind..

Sometimes, at night…I just play with stars and light…here’s one of those nights.. where I set the digital camera on long exposure and play about with a lantern.

Bright Blessings-Mani

Primordial Sleep (visionary art)

We Wiccans and Witches know these words well..  `Sink Down..Sink Down..  Sink Deeper and more Deep, into Eternal and Primordial Sleep..’  I had a thought few hours ago..and was driven to create this ..

Feel free to share, if it brings you peace and inspiration.  🙂

Doctor Who – Art of Mani

If all goes well, a portal will open up at 7.50pm (gmt) and swallow the entire..  No..just kidding. Am going to try something a bit clever..   set up a blog and let it be published at a pre-set time..(cos I;ll be in a Cinema watching the big show tonight!!)   So.. this blog should be coming out…at 7.50pm…gmt..when the `Doctor Who: Day of the Doctor’ premiers all over the world..in many countries…in many cinemas..as well as on their television screens (of course!)

Most of this art works are very old..and faded.. I suppose I could enhance it graphically…Maybe another time..But here are the scans of the original..

These were copied covers off those Target Novelisations..  going back to mid-1980’s when I had arrived in UK..

And here are some slightly better quality pencil art.. portraits of the older Doctors..  

And Finally, here’s a concept illustration (A3) called `The Forfeit’  that shows the 6th Doctor with Valyard..   Notice the Hanged-Man tarot card, the fallen chess piece, the 13 on dice and so on..  🙂 

Enjoy

Astrology Charts & graphics for Solar & Lunar Eclipses of April & May 2013

It’s a Triple Eclipse period!  Normally Eclipses occur in pairs..  one Solar and one lunar…but once in a while, there may be a third one.. (it’s to do with the orbits, geometry and the lunar nodes.. )

Well, we have a Full Moon (lunar) partial eclipse on 25th April 2013, then a Solar eclipse on 10th May 2013, and another Full Moon (penumbral lunar) Eclipse on 25th May’13.

I’ve created Astrology charts for all 3 of them, so you can see where the planets will be on those specific days..

I’ll be writing more on how and who are affected by these Eclipses, and if you do know your own birth chart / planetary positions, – how you can work out if any parts of your life will be severely affected!!

For now, here are the charts..   Come back and check in a few days..  or subscribe to my blog to keep up to date 🙂

Sanctuary of the Goddess (Visionary art & ideals)

Sanctuary of the Goddess…  What and where is the Sanctuary of the Goddess?  It’s global and yet within us. A true belief..and an ideal.. for each and every pagan, magician, spiritualist.. seeking the comfort, solace, beauty and nurturing arms of the Great Mother Goddess…who is known by many names..Gaia, Isis, Aphrodite, Artemis, Shakthi, Freya, Tara.. and more..

I was inspired to spontaneously create this open facebook group a month ago..   I guess I am just following an idea, an ideal..? a thought..or even a feeling .That’s all I know…  The name has come to be, so now…where it may go is up to all those who join and contribute..

Arc of Isis - Sanctuary of the Goddess

Arc of Isis – Sanctuary of the Goddess

The art work for it began with the `Arc of Isis../ Dark Isis ‘ (link is here if you want to see that).  . But now I’ve had some more inspiration to do more art.. and what I have used are photos I had personally taken..of places in London, Croydon (Coombe woods), Hasting, Avebury, Scotland, and of course the cave from Cornwall. .

Sanctuary of the Goddess – facebook group (click to visit)

Feel free to praise, promote and honor the Goddess in any of her forms.. Art, creative expressions, poetry are welcome.. as are open honest deep explorations and discussions. Conflicts are okay as long as those involved are brave enough to stay and go deep.. rather than mud-sling and run. Provocations and antagonism are discouraged..if it is aimed at people. Harmony is much valued.

Imagine your place of tranquility.. Express your creativity.. and share your beauty within.

And here is the second art work..  which is a variation on the theme..  Enjoy.. and let your mind wander to these peaceful realms..  It’s out there in the astral already..

ps. Am happy for these art works to be shared…(but it will be nice if I am credited for it).  🙂

The Dragon-Calling, Hern & Deer-Goddess (3 art works)

`The Calling’ was initially done as a painting/crayon work on A4 paper. But few years later, I took a photo of it, and whilst keeping the dragon intact and enhancing it, I added photos of April, backgrounds (countryside from Cornwall, cliffs from Hastings) by building up layers (infact the original photo of the `girl’ is a nude one, and the cloths were built up using other photos of fabric!!)

The Hern graphics (left)  is quite old.. almost 6 years, and was initially created for the ritual group `Hern’s Tribe’ (something I started).  You can see how the original photo of me (beardless, short cropped hair) was digitally pained and enhanced. The interlaced background of Trees came from a photo of trees i had taken in Wimbledon!   Few years ago,the same art was used in A Pagan Federation magazine `Pagan Dawn’.

The eco-art `Deer Goddess’ (right) is one that  my partner April and I created in Richmond park some 3-4 years ago, using twigs and pieces we found nearby. Once finished, we did some meditative work with the creation, and left it for the natural elements (and real Deers) to scatter it again.  We can just imagine if a passer-by had seen it (it wa slightly hidden) and got a surprise!
